hi all, noobie here,trying to set up techexams "CCNA TechLabs: The Hardware".
i have an issue here,am trying to configure the 2 router topology,i can access a router using the roll over cable with my desktop,while my laptop doesnt have a com port,do i need additional gear to get to access other router since i dont have a com port on the laptop or is there a way around this with the ethernet port on the router.
Lab includes (2610XM,2X 2600,)(2950 and 2924)

thanks

    You can telnet into the other router for access. You will have to console in first and set it up to allow telnet though.

    If you're looking to get console access from your laptop, just get a serial to USB converter, then plug the USB into your laptop.

    It would get pretty annoying using two computers to configure two routers in a lab. If you don't want to set up an access server just use something like mRemote with tabs for telnet or ssh.
